Anti-Wrinkle Treatment
Botulinum toxin type A (Botox®/Azzalure®) is effective at reducing lines and wrinkles associated with facial expression. Botulinum toxin injections are commonly used to treat lines between the eyebrows and on the bridge of the nose, forehead lines and furrows and crow's feet.


The injections temporarily block the transmission of nerve impulses to the muscles, which cause wrinkles and lines, allowing these to relax. The treatment can also result in a brow lift if desired.

Your facial expression will become more relaxed but by no means mask-like. The overall result is very natural. Several tiny injections to the required areas cause relaxation of the targeted muscle fibres and a cold compress is all that is required for soothing the skin after the treatment.

Generally the initial effect is seen within 7 days and the maximum effect is seen 14 days after treatment. This lasts approximately 4-6 months and regular maintenance treatment every 4-6 months will prevent recurrence. Botox injections can also be used in conjunction with dermal fillers for deep lines.

What can it be used for?

  • Frown, Worry, Laugh, and Bunny Lines

  • Wrinkles around the eyes (Crow’s Feet)

  • Brow Lift or Brow Asymmetry

  • Drooping Mouth Corners

  • Lip Wrinkles

  • Neck Banding

  • Severe underarm sweating

  • Reduces horizontal creases on the forehead

 

The overall advantages of treatment

  1. Reduces or eliminates wrinkles without surgery.

  2. Corrects underlying muscles (as opposed to the skin’s surface as peels do).

  3. Provides dramatic effects which are customizable and reversible.

  4. No sedation or anesthesia is needed, however, you may choose to have the area numbed with an anesthetic cream or a cold pack prior to injecting.

  5. Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. Most patients compare the sensation to a pin prick and treatment takes only a few minutes


‘I love coming to see the Hollyhedge team for Botox, I completely trust them and the results are brilliant. I have had botox a couple of times before by GP friends and was cautious about trying somewhere new as I wanted the results to be subtle and natural and in the past it has been painful and the results haven’t been great- having found the Hollyhedge team I will never go elsewhere again!’

Dermal Fillers
As we age, the amount of Hyaluronic Acid in the skin decreases. This in turn can make the skin thinner and wrinkled. Gels containing Hyaluronic Acid “Fillers” made from Non-animal sources. As these products are identical to the natural substances in the body it means they are completely natural and safe.

Fillers are used to fill out or smooth wrinkles, lines or folds on the face that have been created by the loss of Hyaluraonic Acid (elasticity) in the skin as we age. By restoring the volume to these areas your skin will look smoother and softer, resulting in a fresher and more youthful appearance. 


Fillers can be used for:

  • Eye lines

  • Mouth lines

  • Smile lines on the cheeks

  • Skin indentations

  • Frown lines between the eyebrows

 

The gels are used in different thicknesses depending on the result desired.

Small injections, including local anaesthetic within the gel, are given to the required areas. An instant result can be seen, with effects lasting 4 to 6 months.

A full confidential consultation to determine the optimum effect for each person ensures the result is as natural or full as desired.

‘I have been to a couple of other practitioners and finally found the perfect place, I will never go to anyone else again, Somit makes me feel at ease, is incredibly knowledgeable and the results are great. The whole team are lovely and I would never go anywhere else. They are discreet, professional and a great team.’
